bill had lost. >> team boehner and team obama dig in their heels... >> narrator: now the house belonged to the opposition. >> a president trying to figure out what he does with this... >> president obama acknowledged that he'd taken a shellacking... >> i now pass this gavel and the sacred trust that goes with it to the new speaker. god bless you, speaker boehner. >> narrator: speaker john boehner had 87 new republican lawmakers, many of them deeply conservative. >> these were not people who spent 25 years in politics. in fact, that was a big strike against you. they were elected not to sell out the way so many politicians had done, that they were elected to speak truth to power. >> they'd spent the last two years running around, particularly a lot of these new congressmen in their districts, saying absolutely horrible things about the president-- his ability to lead, his ideology, his integrity, his birth certificate. these are not easy people to deal with. this is a very difficult, ideological caucus, with a very strong sense of self-righteousness and great vitriol and animosity for th
speaker boehner's doomsday machine be stopped in time? who really fathered nancy pelosi's love child? i'm going with eccentric billionaire lucius trent. you know he's also batman. all these questions will be answered but first let's get caught up on what this fiscal cliff is again. i know you've all been holed up on vacation the last three weeks with your wife, two children and life counseling. the fiscal cliff is the economic catastrophe that would occur with the simultaneous expiring of the bush tax cuts and deep across-the-board spending cuts that congress scheduled to kick in january 1 so congress couldn't negotiate a fiscal solution by january 1. confused? let me put it in terms of a 21st century analogy that can crystallize the point of it. pretend america is a successful railroad company. that has fallen on some hard fiscal times. there's an argument within the company about whether to make some changes to the dining car offering, maybe cut fares for less wealthy riders or on the other side of the argument where trains themselves are steel beasts that stalin invented to kill free
that appears on your screen. >>> in the spotlight tonight, the boehner rule that is no longer a rule. the boehner rule, like the rule before it said the republican speaker would not allow a vote on any bill that does not have a support of the majority of house republican, not all house republicans, but a majority. boehner first broke that rule on new year's day when he allowed a vote to avert the fiscal curb and raise the top income tax rate. the fiscal cliff deal passed the house, 257 to 167 with only 85 republicans voting for it. and 151 republicans voting against it. boehner broke his rule again tonight when he allowed a vote on a $51 billion hurricane relief package to sandy. the bill passed the house, with just 49 republicans voting for it and 179 republicans voting against hit. today, chuck todd asked if the boehner rule will apply to the debt ceiling. >> if there is not a majority in the house republican conference to raise the debt limit but there is a majority in the house of representatives to raise a clean debt limit, would the leadership be willing to do that? >> you know
democrats to vote in favor of it. it marks the second time now that house speaker john boehner has broken his own rule, the boehner rule, model on the hastert rule. said the speaker would not bring any bill to the floor for a vote that does not have the support of a majority of his conference, a majority of the majority, it's known as. but last night, just about 20% of the republican conference voted for the bill. the vote split the leadership, majority leader eric cantor, majority whip mccarthy voted for the bill. boehner first broke his rule on new year's day when he allowed a vote to avert the fiscal cliff on taxes. apparently there's an addendum to the boehner rule. the majority of the majority, unless the country is on the verge of a tax crisis, or chris christie has access the to a megaphone. christie made sure this week that republicans knew he would use it. >> and i'll say again, new jersey does not expect anything more than what was done for louisiana and alabama and mississippi and if they want to make new rules about disasters, they picked the wrong state to make the new rules
boehner say we're done. we solved the problem of baselines that are flux waiting every two years, we know where we are on the revenue side, and now all the fights need to come on spending, and conservatives are in a good position to talk bow size of government and cutting back a lot of the pelosi, reid, and obama spending binge. neil: you know, i look at the numbers, and, jonas, there's just no way you can get there alone on taxes, that hark to the fact that the the "wall street journal" had tax all their money, $1.3 trillion, does not address the deficit just this year. so you have to get more money from other folks; right? >> no question taxes did not go up enough to settle the budget, the hole of the major spending cuts. obama talks about the clinton years, but taxes were higher for lower income, families, child credits were not there, and lower rates. what's the problem is it did not apply to people and added layers of complexity to an already ridiculously complex tax code. as an investment advisers you have to deal with rates, created new ones nowings baa there's an additional 3.6, a
the posturing and work. >> let me ask you on a senate issue. john boehner issued a statement critical of the senate saying your body has not passed a budget in for years and it is time to produce a budget that cut spending. >> we did pass one. we did the so-called sequestration legislation. i realize he has to play to his base. this poor guy could not get sandy relief at the end of the last congress. they finally got through part of it after some local members of his party said do not give any more campaign contributions to republicans until you do. i would like to see the house to some of that. i do not believe i should tell them what to do. we passed a bipartisan farm bill. we worked very hard on it. it passed overwhelmingly. it got to the house they were afraid to even vote one way or another. we passed the violence against women act. how could anyone be in favor of violence against women? it passed overwhelmingly with bipartisan support. if it goes to the house, we cannot do anything on this. we passed the sandy relief. they would not take that on. my message is i appreciate it. i
to the president, out right hostile. john boehner said they'll take up these measures one by one. the senate is going to go in a piecemeal fashion. what interests me is the senate on the gun and on the second term agenda. harry reid said about 10 of the 23 democrats may have a real problem with this gun control agenda. maybe the number's a little bit shorter than that. but you're talking about democrats in states likele north carolina, arkansas, alaska, colorado, who will have trouble supporting the president on a whole host of these issues. it's one thing for the president to demonize the republicans and he's doing that and he's taking on a much more confrontational approach. but what happens when moderate democrats where they have to rely on some republican leaning type voters balk at the president's proposals? that changes the politics very quickly for him. gwen: but i'm curious where americans are. one of the things that i saw in his proposal is that the center for disease control should not be banned by investigating gun violence. who knew that they were? >> i don't think anybody did. b
. >> and in his press conference, president obama quoted speaker john boehner from 2011. >> that would be a financial disaster, not only for our country but for the worldwide economy. i don't think it is a question that is even on the table. >> and the last question of his press conference, the president was asked if he may be more successful with some of the nuts you just heard from if he spent more quality time with them. >> you and your staff are too insular, that you don't socialize enough. >> this, of course, is one of the great myths of governing, that intractable problems, political problems, can somehow be solved over a card game and a couple of drinks. that has never, ever been the case nor will it ever be the case. >> i like speaker boehner personally. and you know, when we went out and played golf we had a great time. but that didn't get a deal done in 2011. >> the president actually had to remind the media that congressional behavior is the result of democracy. >> now if the american people feel strongly about these issues and they push hard and they reward, or don't reward
. although the u.s. senate acted last month on sandy relief, it has taken john boehner's republican-controlled house 78 days since the storm to pass this bill responding to the storm. in the end, on the republican side, it ended up being a grudging vote for sandy relief. republicans voted against sandy relief by a 3-1 margin. the bill was only able to pass because a minority of republicans joined with democrats to get it done in the house. even though the senate already passed its version of hurricane sandy relief last year, last month, the senate bill has to be redone because it took the house so long to get their side of it done. the senate is expected to get their side done again shortly. and then the president says he will sign the measure into law. >>> and tonight, in further breaking news, as slow as house republicans were to act in response to hurricane sandy, tonight's other major news is about how fast new york state was able to move to respond to a different kind of disaster. tonight one month and one day after the mass shooting at sandy hook elementary school in newtown,
boehner has not been to one yet. mitch mcconnell we want to one. is that a fair assessment that the president is not making the social connections he needs when it seems that the right is turning him down. >> no question. i think some democrats have probably told me in the president's first term that he was somewhat antisocial. look, this is a good thing and a bad thing. he very much is a family person, he enjoys being around his nuclear family, and that's admirable. however, you are the president. part of your job is to reach phone across the aisles to develop close relationships, but also with members of your own party. i think even members of his own party would say this president has a bit of coolness about him, a bit of distance action and i think that hurt him when it came to certain policy initiatives, and quite frankly a lot of people on the right said i don't think necessarily think what the president is thinking. i'm not sure exactly sure what position i should say. that was pretty much a common known factor, if you will here in washington, d.c., and hopefully tha
that the president's proposals are rolling in. the speaker john boehner said they will review the republicans and warned good intentions do not necessarily make good laws. the senator said president obama is abusing his power with the executive orders and the senate will hold the first post new town committee in two weeks. we know how the nra feels before the president took the mike, the powerful gun lobby took a strike infuriating straightics with an ad that infolks his daughters. >> the president's kids more important than yours? why is he skeptical about armed security when his kids are protected by armed guards in their school. >> the white house called that ad repugnant and cowardly. we kick things off with peter alexander outside the white house. run down the major takeaways from the president in the executive orders he issued. >> you played the best highlights from today's event, but this was an emotional heart felt appeal from the president encouraging anybody paying attention across america to reach out directly to their congress people, saying congress must act on this issue. you ra
congress. >> horrible numbers for congress. >> a pitiful 14%. >> pretty bad numbers on john boehner's report card. >> the debt ceiling is a dangerous game. >> i don't see that as a winner for them. >> don't fight battles you can't win. >> it is a troubled time for the party. >> let's stop for a second. >> let's make clear decisions. >> the republican strategy. >> stop talking about rape. >> don't fight battles you can't win. >> it is a troubled time for the party, get something done. >> we have to be the party of new solutions, we're not just going to be the party of no. >> it is groundhog day. >> the conservatives, the retreat, we've come a long way since. >> i'm ezra klein in for lawrence o'donnell, one of the great moments, when redford having just won the election, sits down on the bed taking it all in. the next few words are not just to ever film junky, pretty much to every political candidate. >> what do we do now? >> what do we do now? that is always the question, what do you do now when you have to govern? but it is not just a question that affects winners, sometimes losers
for it. house speaker john boehner also ignored his obligation to pay the nation's bills and also complained about spending. the american people do not support raising the debt ceiling without reducing government spending at the same time. they speak so confident, don't they? it's almost as if they forgot all about the spending cuts the president already gave them over a year ago. well, let's try to help them figure it out a little bit with a little visual and audio assistance. >> over the past two years i've signed into law about $1.4 trillion in spending cuts. two weeks ago, i signed into law more than $600 billion into new revenue, by making sure the wealthiest americans begin to pay their fair share. when you add the money that will save in interest payments on the debt, all together that adds up to a total of about $2.5 trillion in deficit reduction over the past two years. not counting the $400 billion already saved from winding down the wars in iraq and afghanistan. so we've made progress. >> didn't president clinton say it was all about arithmetic? republicans can posture
quickly because time is running short. >> now, house speaker john boehner responded quickly saying house republicans will do the right thing. they will be responsible, they will meet america's obligations and make sure the government does not shut down. he tried to take that specter off the table. but this is a very tough fight that's getting more and more problematic, larry, because the president said he's going to break the habit of crisis-driven fiscal negotiations. if he's going to succeed in that, somebody is going to have to break and it may have to be soon because treasury secretary geithner said this afternoon we could hit the debt ceiling and exhaust all the extraordinary measures he's been taking as soon as one month from now. >> you know, john, 2010, 2011, the 2012 he negotiated. he voted against the debt ceiling i believe in 2006. why all of a sudden does he not want have to have negotiations? >> i think will's happened, larry, is that the president spent 2011 and 2012 with republicans squeezing him on his priorities, having opposed him during the first two years of his presi
, as house speaker john boehner earlier promised. instead, it would force congress to pass a budget or go without being paid. the government could reach the current debt ceiling by mid-february. ray nagin, the mayor of new orleans during hurricane katrina, has been indicted on charges for corruption. a federal grand jury accused him today of bribery, wire fraud, and money laundering while in office. nagin was the city's mayor from 2002 until 2010. two former new orleans officials and two businessmen have already pleaded guilty in the case. u.s. attorney general eric holder today defended president obama's moves to curb gun violence. the president signed 23 executive orders this week, calling for such things as more research into gun violence. today, in washington, holder told the u.s. conference of mayors that there's no question the orders are legal. >> now let me be very clear. let me be very clear. not one of these executive orders contrary to what a few have said impinges upon anyone's second amendment rights or are inconsistent with the historical use of executive power. >> sreenivas
today as very interesting. it could be john boehner's camp saying we can't control the far right wing. it could also be a little bit of a bluff. it may be that boehner really feels that way or maybe he wants the white house the think he feels that way and it could be, again, part of this grand game of chicken. everyone is positioning right now. that's what's happening. that's what the president will do. >> ed, you're our congressional reporter and you saw that political headline. we know that there's this big house gop pow-wow coming up in williamsburg, virginia, at the end of the week. >> that's right is speaker boehner is going to walk he's members through exactly what would happen. he thinks he can put off default by telling them the shutdown is dramatic enough. i guess the question is how serious is he? is one of these things really going to happen? >> well, you know, we've seen these threats before from both sides, that they don't want to have a fight. they end up having a fight and it turns into some version of high noon on pennsylvania avenue. but that meeting in virginia is go
mitch mcconnell attend and house speaker john boehner declined each and every time. it's interesting, he's not against attending state dinners. >> can't smoke and don't serve merlot. >> there's president bush, attending a state dinner during the bush presidency. >> he had no problem going when he liked who was in the white house, just had a problem going when it was president barack obama, it appears. >> can we show this graphic. mitch mcconnell went. let's show it. it was a good one. the germans went. they love their sauerkraut. >> they were invited to a screening of "lincoln," apparently at the very last minute -- >> nobody's perfect. >> i would think when the president invites you to see a movie at the white house, you might want to go. maybe if you were disagreeable in nature, not fun and quite frankly not interested in getting anywhere on spending, maybe you would decline. look at the president. why don't i play that sound bite again, no matter what you think of his ideologically, joe, wouldn't you want to have a beer with that guy or a beer with mitch mcconnell. >> you keep interru
the negotiations and tried the plan b by speaker boehner, it became clear, even after they tried to amend the senate yield that they could not do so dosh and the senate deal, that could not do so. -- it became clear, even after they tried to amend the senate deal, that they could not do so. i could understand people voting for it because they wanted to get past the so-called fiscal cliff. a deal that increases the size of deficit does not provide a long-term solution. a deal that lets people who have income of about $450,000 be lumped in with people who are we the middle of america do-- have to face these tough decisions. i'm not interested in mounting the burden and solving these decisions on the middle class. i fear is we will see this gamesmanship again and again to what will be essentially three new opportunities for republicans to play mischief with our budget. >> you talk about wanting a grand bargain, a deal that looks at a bunch of these issues. trying to avert the debt ceiling debate by invoking the 14th amendment, cementing dosh minting the trillion dollar coin -- do you think t
majority and the speaker, john boehner. shame on congress. if they want to make new rules about disasters from the detective on state. neil: more than 20 billion of the original monetary aid is doing nothing that it was proposed to do. the sad truth is that the squeaky wheel gets the greece. calling an emergency every other week is like calling wolf. we think the point is about as free cash? >> well, they can get money. how much better to get the federal taxpayer pick up the cost and have your own constituency this money. it is free money and they needed to hand out the cash on and something that every governor wants to do. declare a disaster or something to get free cash. >> is the classic example of pork barrel. you know, there is a solution to this problem and that would be for people to pay in advance. governments could have an emergency fund instead of spending all their money every year. they could be prepared partly for their emergencies. the federal government could play this because they could set up a fund for disasters and they could set up which would be used to handle disaste
republicans elected a white house screening of "lincoln" last month. had mitch mcconnell, john boehner, lamar alexander attended, they were all invited, they would have joined not only nancy pelosi, harry reid but steven spielberg, tommy lee jones. as tip o'neill famously said about his political foe, ronald reagan, love the sinner. hate the sin. when president reagan would invite the speaker, tip o'neill over to the white house for drinks and raise a glass to one another. there's no shortage of parties planned around inauguration 2013. here is hoping it spills over to the next four years and both sides of the aisle make a move to be more social and more civil. and, hence, more productive. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz, starts right now. >>> good evening, americans. welcome "the ed show" from new york. republicans are raising the white flag. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. >> the republican game of chicken is over. eric cantore proposes a three-mo
debate is the perfect time for it. and speaker of the house john boehner said the consequences of failing to increase the debt ceiling are real but so too are the consequences of allowing our spending problem to go unresolved. the spending and debt issues took most of the president's attention today, but he also turned to the issue of gun violence. after the shootings at an elementary school in newtown connecticut, he appointed vice president biden to come up with recommendations for action. the vice president met with lawmakers today and with groups on both sides of the issue last week. plans to submit proposals by tomorrow. president obama would not discuss specifics today. instead he said this. >> i'm confident that there are some steps that we can take that don't require legislation and that are within my authority as president. and where you get a step that has the opportunity to reduce the possibility of gun violence, then i want to go ahead and take it. >> brown: he conceded that a fight in congress is likely but he hopes that some compromise is is possible. >> the issue here is no
john boehner is insisting a debt increase would have to be accompanied by spending cuts to programs such as medicare. boehner has promised a vote tomorrow on $51 billion in aid to hurricane sandy vicitms. theres alot up in the air at boeing after a series of leaks and electrical glitches last week involving its latest aircraft, dubbed the 787 dreamliner. the faa will begin reviewing how the airliner is designed, manufacturered and assembled, with particular attention to the miles of electrical wiring used instead of heavier hydrallic systems. in a statement, boeing says "we are never satisfied while there is room for improvement. we welcome this opportunity to conduct this joint review." joe schwieterman of depaul university says it is too early for investors to be worried. "investors get nervous when there are these rollouts and there are problems. if this gets worse, boeing's stock could be affected, but i doubt it will be at this point. but who knows what will be revealed as these inspections unfold?" meanwhile, the airline is expanding and contracting on the ground. it's opening
